"Posted per request. Great Christmas appetizer! From the Pillsbury Crescent Special Edition cook book. How ever I did replace the 1/2 cup chive - and - onion potato topper with 1/2 cup of my prepared Chive and Garlic Dip Mix. This dip has a better flavor than the potato topper. Recipe makes two trees. Prep time about an hour, decorating time...well thats up to you! I would love to see several pictures of this one, as it can be decorated several ways."

"I made this for my MIL and SIL when we were busy making their Christmas trays. They loved it so much and it was great for getting us in a festive mood after slaving away in the kitchen all morning. I made my own onion dip to use. I like that the bread was flavored, otherwise it would be a bit bland tasting. I think next time I make this, I will use freshly shredded or shaved Parmesan cheese for even more flavor. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Cookbooks Tag - Thanks much! :)"
"This was visually a great snack. I made it for a Cristmas eve party, but it wasn't amazing as far as tatse goes. It wasn't bad, but didn't have much flavor. I might try to think of different decorations for the trees to enhance the flavor, because it was too darn cute to give up on! Thank you!"
"Great recipe! So easy to put together and so cute. I had lots of compliments on this one! I did have to make a few changes though. I made my star out of cheese and used a green pepper to garnish the tree due to the high cost of yellow peppers in my area. Thanks for posting, GrandmaG!"
